Trace Adkins,The Christmas Show
NiteLite Promotions is proud to present TRACE ADKINS, THE CHRISTMAS SHOW at the Genesee Theatre in Waukegan on Thursday, December 5th at 7:30pm. Tickets go on sale Friday, September 13th at 10am. Each ticket comes with a digital download of Trace’s new Christmas album, “The King’s Gift.”
Trace Adkins will release THE KING’S GIFT, a Christmas album of Celtic carols, on October 29, 2013. He will then embark on The Christmas Show Tour, a reverent theatrical and musical production for the whole family, beginning November 15th. VIP ticket holders will be invited to a pre-show experience with a private performance, Q&A, special merchandise and artist meet and greet. The King's Gift (“Tiodhlac An Righ,” in Gaelic) pays tribute to an ancient genre and transports the listener to a time of mystery and valor. Esteemed guests join Adkins on his first-ever holiday album since his Platinum debut sixteen years ago. Guests include renowned Irish ensemble, The Chieftains; Scottish vocalist Alyth McCormack, British folk/pop star Emma Stevens, multi-award winning family group, The Isaacs; Kevin Costner and daughter Lily Costner; and legendary drummer Kenny Aronoff. The keyboards, acoustic, steel and bass guitars of American folk music harmonize with the weissenborn, mandolin, uilleann pipe, penny whistle, violin, viola, cello, harp, and organ.
“The Christmas Show” Tour begins a new Adkins holiday tradition for years to come. Envisioned as a theatrical production, Trace will alternate between fireside story-telling of anecdotes (both personal and historical) and performances of classic carols with a 12 piece ensemble – a quartet string section, female vocalists and a range of traditional instruments. The tour is inspired by Adkins’ annual hosting duties at Disney World’s Candlelight Processional, where his deep baritone narrates Christmas stories, while a full choir and orchestra performs.
Tickets are available at the Genesee Theatre box office, all Ticketmaster outlets, online at Ticketmaster.com, or charge at 800-982-2878
